New Tatcha Cleansers : The Rice Wash & The Deep Cleanse.

Tatcha the deep cleanse review New Tatcha Cleansers : The Rice Wash + The Deep Cleanse

Tatcha skincare launched in the UK just a year ago and it’s safe to say it’s made it’s mark, as expected. I first used the infamous Tatcha blotting papers maybe 15+years ago and I literally could not wait to try the skincare formulations that I had heard so much about. Having used it for a fair while, I can tell you my favourites have to be the Dewy Skin Cream, the Camellia Cleansing Oil, the Liquid Silk Canvas Primer and the Luminous Dewy Skin Mist : stunning formulas and some of the most beautiful skincare to ever exist! They recently introduced x 2 new cleansers to the Tatcha line-up and I want to chat about that today, but first up let’s have a Tatcha skincare overview in case you are new to the brand..

Tatcha Skincare : What you need to know.

It’s SO much more than pots of skincare. After reading up on Tatcha….I’m really interested and impressed by their back story and philosophies and it really focuses on a whole lifestyle , well-being and a multi-sensory approach.

What you hear, touch, taste, smell, and see impacts your state of mind, which is reflected in your skin. That’s why care for your skin must involve care for all of you. Tatcha skincare is now formulated to provide both physical and emotional benefits, such as a calmer spirit or clearer mind. Don’t we all need a bit of that?!

‘Rooted in timeless Japanese wisdom, Tatcha crafts pure yet potent skincare rituals, merging beloved Japanese botanicals with proven clinical ingredients for radiance from skin to soul. Through their cult-favourite line, Tatcha has created a bridge between skincare and wellbeing for next level experience when doing your skincare routine. The brand is a reminder that the skin, brain and body are in constant communication.’

Tatcha ‘Five-sense Rituals’ :

For truly holistic care, Tatcha offer research-backed five-sense rituals that encourage a virtuous cycle of well-being to support healthy-looking skin. This unique multisensory approach was informed by Toryo Ito, a Zen monk from Kyoto whose meditation style is rooted in the five senses.

The five-sense rituals are : 

Sound Listening to natural sounds like wind, water, and bird song soothe our nervous system, bring us into dynamic balance, and encourage healing.

Touch Research shows that the Japanese ritual of hand healing, teate, activates very slow nerve fibers that result in positive feelings and reduce stress.

Taste Our taste buds are not only connected to nerve fibers, they are also linked with scent receptors, creating a powerful conduit into our state of being.

Sight Sights of nature put us into a state of “soft fascination,” where our minds are at ease in a restorative, non-taxing focus.

Smell Because our skin cells have scent receptors, our whole body can inhale functional fragrances and prompt a waterfall of neurochemicals that promote healing, and boost mood.

Tatcha the deep cleanse review


These two new cleansers launched just a few months ago and they join the existing cleanser from Tatcha which is the Camellia Cleansing Oil (absolutely stunning of course!). These new cleansers are really brilliant and I have been using both for months so want to share with you a little more and to hopefully help you choose which one you may need.

The Tatcha Rice Wash :

This is a beautifully creamy, thick texture. You only need a really small amount as it really lathers up and a little goes a long way. Its gentle pH-neutral base removes impurities without stripping skin of its essential oils. It has a very luxurious creamy lather and leaves skin silky, smooth and well-nourished.

It contains a  blend of Okinawa algae and hyaluronic acid and is will replenish moisture and ceramides, and leaves skin super soft and gorgeous. It is great for normal-dry and mature skin types. 

  • Hydrates and plumps the skin
  • Foams into a creamy lather
  • Non-comedogenic, non-irritating and non-sensitising
  • Dermatologist-tested formula
  • Neutral pH does not over-dry the skin

The Tatcha Rice Wash costs £41 for a 120ml size. SHOP HERE.

The Deep Cleanse : 

This is probably my most-used and I really, really am enjoying this (I’m nearly out, sob!). This is an oil-free, gel-based facial wash which gives a deep cleanse and gentle exfoliation. It contains natural luffa fruit so you can feel tiny particles as you massage it over the skin and honestly, leaves skin feeling so fresh and revitalised. A PERFECT morning cleanse in my opinion. 

It lifts away dirt and minimises excess oil, unclogs the pores and deep cleanses. The gel formula lathers into a foam but doesn’t leave skin feeling stripped or tight. Contains amino acids, Japanese wild rose, Japanese leopard lily and a blend of fruit extracts to calm and condition the skin.

  • Improves hydration
  • Helps to reduce excess oils
  • Promotes skin softness and radiance
  • Suitable for combination, oily as well as sensitive skin
  • Non-comedogenic, non-irritating and non-sensitising

The Tatcha Deep Cleanse costs £41 for 150ml. SHOP HERE.

tatcha the rice wash review

A glorious cleansing duo from Tatcha and it’s actually quite hard to choose between them as I use both. I slightly favour the Deep Cleanse as I just love how fresh is leaves my skin feeling and I am typically combination on my skin. The Balancing cleanse is definitely more gentle and best-suited to a more normal-dry skin type :  I love using this as a second cleanse in the PM (after the Camellia oil) OR sometimes in the AM when my skin need a little more calming and soothing.
